  You have KDE 3.4 available in an external repository. GNOME 2.10 is
  being uploaded to experimental. As for xorg, ask the X11 maintainers.

  Nobody forces you to use Debian. Just be glad that it exists, and that
  all these distributions can base their work on it to offer you a shiny
  product. There are differences between Debian and e.g. Ubuntu, both in
  their goals and in their resources.

  If you see it necessary, then please be 100% sure they're thick _and_
  uncaring before addressing them like this. This mail of yours hurt my
  feelings. I don't expect my users to thank me everyday, but certainly
  I'm not here to get bashed.
